Art & Development

Work vs. The Work, and Working

I must have been an optimist. Only an optimist would expect that I could maintain a super-high level of art production, and ignore the realities of work, money and logistics (the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly?).

I love being an Affiliate Artist at the Headlands, but with the winter chills and funding shortages, I’ve had to psych myself up for the one-hour drive to the cold, damp studio… Of course there’s nothing better than the feeling of putting in a long day at the studio. I just have to remind myself that, in the end there’s the work, but day to day, it’s all about working.
